Confirmé : le changement d’horloge perturbe votre sommeil, mais uniquement dans ce sens

Published

on

Changer les horloges pourrait entraîner des troubles du sommeil après l’âge mûr.

Mais des problèmes de sommeil peuvent survenir, étonnamment, après que les horloges reculent et que nous gagnons une heure supplémentaire, plutôt que lorsque les horloges avancent.

Des chercheurs canadiens ont interrogé plus de 30 000 personnes âgées de 45 à 85 ans sur leurs habitudes de sommeil à six moments différents, autour du moment où les horloges changeaient.

Ils n’ont trouvé aucune différence dans les problèmes de sommeil après le passage à l’heure d’été – qui intervient le dernier dimanche de mars au Royaume-Uni.

Mais le sommeil des gens semblait souffrir après le retour des horloges, comme c’est le cas le dernier dimanche d’octobre dans ce pays.

Après avoir gagné une heure, les gens étaient plus susceptibles d’avoir régulièrement du mal à s’endormir et d’avoir des problèmes à rester endormis, ce qui affectait leur fonctionnement pendant la journée.

Ils se sentaient également plus fatigués pendant leurs heures d’éveil.

Le problème est que nos horloges internes dépendent grandement de la lumière du jour pour signaler quand nous devrions être éveillés.

Pour “réinitialiser” cette horloge biologique et la synchroniser avec nos nouvelles heures de sommeil après le changement d’horloge, les experts du sommeil disent que nous avons besoin de beaucoup de lumière du jour.

Mais pendant les mois d’automne, il y a moins de lumière du jour disponible.

Les auteurs disent également, cependant, qu’il est également possible que les gens remarquent simplement un manque de sommeil plus à l’automne parce qu’ils se sentent généralement plus misérables à propos des nuits plus sombres et de l’hiver imminent.

Quoi qu’il en soit, l’étude a révélé de manière rassurante que les perturbations du sommeil autodéclarées après le retour des horloges étaient de courte durée.

Le Dr Ronald Postuma, auteur principal de l’étude, de l’Université McGill au Canada, a déclaré: “La bonne nouvelle est que les perturbations du sommeil que nous avons observées après le passage à l’heure standard ont été brèves et ne sont plus évidentes deux semaines après le quart de travail.”

L’étude, publiée dans la revue Neurology, a classé les personnes comme souffrant d’« insomnie d’endormissement » si elles mettaient plus de 30 minutes à s’endormir, au moins trois nuits par semaine, ce qui affectait au moins modérément leur fonctionnement quotidien, comme leur travail ou de concentration, et s’ils étaient également insatisfaits de leur sommeil.

Parmi les 588 personnes interrogées la semaine précédant le retour des horloges, seulement 3,3 % avaient ce problème.

Mais c’était plus de deux fois plus fréquent chez 573 personnes interrogées dans la semaine qui a suivi le retour des horloges, affectant 7% d’entre elles.

Dans la semaine qui a suivi le retour des horloges, par rapport à la semaine précédente, les gens étaient 64% plus susceptibles d’avoir une «insomnie de maintien du sommeil».

Cela signifiait se réveiller au milieu de la nuit, ou trop tôt le matin, et avoir du mal à se rendormir, au moins trois fois par semaine, ce qui affectait leur fonctionnement quotidien et les laissait insatisfaits de leur sommeil.

Les gens étaient deux fois plus susceptibles de déclarer avoir de la difficulté à rester éveillés pendant la journée, au moins trois jours par semaine, malgré un sommeil suffisant d’au moins sept heures, lorsque les horloges avaient reculé.

Le problème peut être encore pire au Royaume-Uni, où les niveaux de lumière varient encore plus d’une saison à l’autre qu’au Canada, où l’étude a été menée.

Les auteurs de l’étude avertissent qu’ils ont seulement demandé à quel point les gens dormaient bien, plutôt que de le mesurer directement.

Mais, bien qu’il n’y ait aucune différence dans les problèmes de sommeil après que les horloges aient avancé, les gens étaient 34% plus susceptibles d’être insatisfaits de leur rythme de sommeil actuel lorsqu’on leur a demandé la semaine après le retour des horloges, par rapport à la semaine précédente.

Des études antérieures ont établi un lien entre le changement d’horloge et une augmentation des accidents, y compris des accidents de voiture, et une augmentation du taux d’accidents vasculaires cérébraux et de crises cardiaques.

Le Dr Postuma a déclaré: «Le résultat intéressant, plus que de savoir si le sommeil est affecté par les horloges qui avancent ou reculent, est que le changement d’horloge est lié à des problèmes de sommeil, au moins une fois par an (SUBS – veuillez garder).

«Cependant, nous savons maintenant que l’impact est faible et s’estompe rapidement.

“Une fois les horloges avancées, nous avons également constaté que les gens dormaient neuf minutes de plus en moyenne.”

Scientists spot mysterious object at the heart of our Milky Way that doesn’t fit definition of anything in else in the galaxy

Published

on

Scientists have discovered a mysterious object at the center of our Milky Way that does not fit the criteria of anything else in the galaxy.

The team found the object emits microwaves, which suggests it contains dust and fast-moving gas that is traveling nearly 112,000 miles per hour from a very small area in the heart of our galaxy.

Astronomers have considered a range of options for what the object could be, from a black hole to a collapsing cloud and evolved star, but found ‘its features do not match well with those of any known type of astronomical body.’

The team found the object emits microwaves, which has suggested it contains dust and fast-moving gas. The gas was detected moving nearly 112,000 miles per hour from a very small area in the heart of our galaxy

‘The center of our Galaxy contains billions of stars, tens of millions of solar masses of gas, a supermassive black hole, a tenth of our Galaxy’s ongoing star formation, and an extensive graveyard of stellar remnants,’ researchers shared in the study published in the Astrophysical Journal Letters.

‘It is therefore the likeliest place to find new classes of objects. We present one such object in this work.

The object, labeled G0.02467–0.0727, was discovered using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) observatory in Chile.

‘We consider several explanations for the Millimeter Ultra-Broad Line Object (MUBLO), including protostellar outflow, explosive outflow, collapsing cloud, evolved star, stellar merger, high-velocity compact cloud, intermediate mass black hole, and background galaxy,’ the team wrote.

‘Most of these conceptual models are either inconsistent with the data or do not fully explain it.’

The object was observed while the team was ALMA to study a special area in the center of our galaxy, known as the central molecular zone (CMZ).

The CMZ, measuring about 700 light-years across, contains nearly 80 percent of all the dense gas in the galaxy and is home to giant molecular clouds and massive star forming clusters that are poorly understood.

Astronomers detected millimeter waves coming from the object, with the surrounding dust showing broad, spread-out signals.

The object also gave off continuous radiation, which appeared to come from the dust and emitted specific signals from certain molecules like carbon monosulfide and sulfur monoxide. 

Carbon monosulfide has been detected in molecular clouds and sulfur monoxide has been observed around Io, one of Jupiter’s moons.

The gas’s temperature was around -436 degrees Fahrenheit, much colder than what has been typically seen in this part of the galaxy.

Researches also found that the gas molecules were not traveling in a simple ring, which suggested they could be flowing away from an exploding star, reported Nature.

However, shock waves create specific chemicals that MUBLO lacks.

Researchers said that the most plausible explanations would be an intermediate-mass black hole or a pair of merging stars obscured by dust.

But they also noted that the object does not fit either definition.

‘The MUBLO is, at present, an observationally unique object,’ the team concluded in the study.

No BBQ start to summer: Wet weather hits supermarket sales

Published

on

  • Kantar: Grocery revenues rose by just 1% over the four weeks ending 9 June
  • Poor weather hit demand for traditional summer products like suncare items 

Wet weather and lower inflation led to take-home supermarket sales rising at their slowest pace for two years, according to new figures. 

Grocery sales increased by just 1 per cent over the four weeks to 9 June, said market research organisation Kantar, compared to 2.9 per cent in the previous four weeks.

Fraser McKevitt, head of retail and consumer insight at Kantar, claimed people were ‘being put off from popping to the shops’ due to Britain experiencing its wettest spring since 1986 and one of its dampest on record.

Footfall dipped slightly, with shoppers visiting the supermarket an average of 16.3 times per month, against 16.4 in June 2023.

The poor conditions hit demand for traditional summer products like suncare items, which Kantar revealed slumped by around 25 per cent on the same month last year.

Simultaneously, Britons were purchasing products they would not usually anticipate buying in June, like warming fresh soup, whose sales soared by almost a quarter.

However, Kantar found that the proportion of households describing their financial position as ‘comfortable’ hit 36 per cent, its highest level in two-and-a-half years.

This followed costs declining across nearly one-third of grocery categories, such as milk, butter and toilet tissues.

Grocery inflation fell for the sixteenth consecutive month to 2.1 per cent, its lowest point since October 2021, amid a continued drop in energy and fertiliser prices.

While McKevitt acknowledged the cost-of-living crisis was not over, he said: ‘There are positive signs that many of us no longer feel the need to restrict our spending quite so much.’

Kantar believes the UEFA European Football Championship could bolster grocers and pubs, depending on how successful England and Scotland perform at the tournament.

It noted that the proportion of beer and lager sales on promotion had jumped by over 40 per cent during the last four weeks.

‘Retailers will be competing with fans heading out of the house to watch the football as well as with each other,’ said McKevitt. ‘Pubs especially could benefit from a boost – whether or not football comes home.’

Pubs especially could benefit from a boost – whether or not football comes home.’ 

Alongside this announcement, Kantar revealed that Ocado was the fastest-growing grocer for the fourth month in a row, with sales at the online giant rising by 10.7 per cent over the 12 weeks to 9 June.

It also declared that Tesco, Britain’s largest supermarket, expanded its market share by 0.6 percentage points to 27.7 per cent, its best figure since February 2022, as its revenue increased by 4.6 per cent.

In contrast, Asda’s market share declined from 13.1 per cent in the prior 12 weeks to 12.8 per cent as the company struggled with hefty competition in the discount retail sector.

Russ Mould, investment director at AJ Bell, said: ‘Asda has traditionally pitched itself at the value end of the market, but this has become a crowded space.

‘It is losing out to German discounters Aldi and Lidl in one corner and some of the big traditional players in the other corner, including Sainsbury’s and Marks & Spencer, both of whom are pushing hard on the value side of things.’

That dizzy feeling isn’t the weed – Chinese pesticides used on pot farms linked to nausea, memory loss and even cancer

Published

on

Cannabis users who get headaches from their pot may need to look more carefully at their supply.

New research shows how some of the most popular brands on California’s dispensary shelves contain alarmingly high levels of pesticides.

They can irritate the lungs, eyes, and throat and cause rashes, headaches, diarrhea and abdominal pain.

Worse still, contaminants can include chemicals linked to cancer, liver failure, thyroid disease and genetic and neurologic harm to users and unborn children.

Some chemicals have been smuggled in from China — a sign of the growing involvement of Chinese gangs in legal and contraband pot farming in the US in the wake of legalization.

An LA Times and WeedWeek investigation probed some of the most popular brands of vapes and pre-rolled weed in the Golden State.

Some 25 of 42 legal pot products bought from stores and tested at private labs showed concentrations of pesticides above state or federal safety levels.

Most of the pesticides found were in low concentrations that could harm people who used them regularly.

The full extent of the health threat may not be known for years, researchers warned.

Vapes were among the worst offender.

Researchers found that five well-known brands had pesticide loads above federal risk thresholds for harm from a single exposure

Some products contained as many as two dozen pesticides.

The alarming findings echo the results of other surveys these past eight months.

Cannabis farmers are understood to overuse pesticides to boost profits in a tight market.

The high-value crop needs protection from the insect infestations that thrive in greenhouses.

Meanwhile, the surging popularity of vaping has driven demand for vape oils that are made from lower-quality weed, often grown illegally.

The potency of pesticides on some farms is so strong now that state investigators are urged to wear respirators and take blood poisoning tests when they come across them.

Researchers highlighted bags of illegal Chinese-label fumigants found at a cannabis greenhouse in Siskiyou County, in northern California.

Tests revealed 10 pesticides in the unbranded product, two that can kill if inhaled.

The haul included isoprocarb, a Chinese fumigant that’s not approved for use in the US.

The study focussed on California, but raises concerns for weed users across the country who could be inhaling similar chemicals.

Marijuana is fully legal – for adult recreational and medicinal use – in 29 states. It is fully illegal in four states.

Laws in the remaining states are mixed, meaning the drug may be permitted for medicinal use, allowed only in the form of CBD oil, be decriminalized or be a combination of these.

  • No 864 votes
  • Not sure 19 votes

According to Pew Research, half of US adults say they have used pot, and nearly a quarter say they’ve used it in the past year.

There has been a notable uptick in recent years in the number of grows linked to Chinese nationals.

Some of these have popped up recently in such states as Maine and Oklahoma, with their looser rules and lax enforcement.

Fifty members of Congress in February wrote to the Department of Justice asking for more information about illegal marijuana cultivation linked to Chinese nationals.

The pesticides report is not the first scare for cannabis users.

Dozens of weed products, including buds and rollups, were recalled last month due to the discovery of a toxic mold that is linked to lung infections.

California’s Department of Cannabis Control (DCC) reported that the products might be filled with aspergillus – a fungus that grows on plants when they aren’t stored or dried properly.

Inhaling aspergillus can cause a wide range of health issues including coughing up blood, asthma attacks, headaches, weight loss and in extreme cases, death.

There were 13 overall products that were subject to mandatory recalls including Northern Emerald’s Tyson Undisputed Cannabis Flower, a brand promoted by professional boxer Mike Tyson.
